GUN Control Has Limitations!

Americans are very concerned about gun violence! Politicians are pushing for more gun control, however, guns are selling off the shelves and 250,000 people have joined the NRA since the tragedy at Sandy Hook. We need to bring Americans together, not divide the country!
As a crime and violence prevention specialist for 35 years, here are my thoughts! What do you think? (It may take a moment for PODCAST to appear.) If you want to help strengthen your community, join our Safe Kids Now Network! We will share with you what to do and how to do it! Contact us at:


  1. I know it seems like gun ownership is rampant and out of control, but there are short-term solutions and long-term ones. Gun control would definitely be a great short-term solution, while getting to the root causes of gun violence would be a long-term solution. The parts oif gun control that needs major improvement are the background checks and closing as many loopholes as possible. Another idea could be to show ALL of the effects of gun violence on entire families, rather than glamorizing it in movies and on TV. That would be excellent reality TV, not sugar-coated in any way.

  2. Good comment! Thanks, Carole, for adding your thoughts. Yes, we need short and long term solutions. And, we also need the media to look at how they impact the whole family, especially boys.
